Nielsen Children Survey iOS

Sorry, Apple (AAPL) haters: It looks like you’ll have to deal with iOS mania for years to come. Nielsen on Tuesday released a new survey showing that when it comes to electronics, American children between the ages of 6 and 12 mostly want iOS products for Christmas. In fact, four of the top five most popular products on American kids’ wish lists were Apple devices, as 48% of kids surveyed wanted the iPad, 36% wanted the iPod Touch and the iPad mini, and 33% wanted the iPhone. Nintendo’s (NTDOY) new Wii U was the only product capable of matching the popularity of Apple devices, as 39% of kids surveyed said they wanted the new gaming console.
